I get to build a recording studio. We have pretty much come up with the design and all, but there is one issue left. What console to get? At the moment I'm leaning toward Neve 88R (and that is what the control room is designed around at the moment, but everything is still on paper), but a producer I trust a lot seems to think that the newer API stuff could be better. We're going to go around and mix on stuff and audition it. Apparently this means going to Tennessee. Any suggestions of stuff to audition? We're all allergic to SSL, so no SSL. We also don't want to burn that much power. We really think 48 channels is the minimum, and 64 is plenty.
